i want to bring in ed lavandara who is joining us from centennial, colorado. ed, walk us through the charges that he is faced with. >> sure thing, suzanne. essentially, james holmes has been charged with 142 criminal counts. 24 counts of first-degree murder and 116 counts of attempted murder, and essentially, that is doubled up on the number of victims inside of that movie theater. remember, 12 people killed an 58 people who were wound and taken to hospitals. now the legal reason behind that according to the paperwork we have received is that they were able to file double the charges on each of those victims, because number one, prosecutors say it was a planned attack, and premeditated and also because james holmes showed an extreme indifference towards the people he was killing, and that is that he did not matter who he was killing, but shooting indiscriminantly into the movie theater. because off that, that gives them the legal basis to file double the counts against james holmes. there is also one count of possessing explosives and one count which is a sentence enhancer becaus

's going on in this case now. >> ed lavandera on the scene for us as he's been right from the beginning. thank you. elsewhere, in maryland, police say the fbi are now investigating an abduction with ties to the baseball legend cal rib ken jr. his mother was found safe this morning almost 24 hours after being taken from her home at gunpoint. cnn's lisa sylvester's working the story for us. what happened here, lisa? >> hi there, wolf. what we know is this all started about 7:00, 8:00 yesterday morning when a man apparently approached and went to violet ripken's house and abducted her at gunpoint. he then according to authorities spent most of the day driving around in her car throughout central maryland. and it was only until around 8:30 last night when there was a citizen in the neighboring county, in baltimore county, who saw a suspicious vehicle. he called it in to county authorities. and at that point it was that tip that eventually led to violet ripken being found this morning unharmed back near her house in aberdeen. she was however bound. authorities at this point are not clear wha
's ed lavandera is in aurora for us. ed, what do we know about this package? >> reporter: well, we're still trying to gather information on what exactly is inside that package, wolf. but as you mentioned that law enforcement official telling cnn that on monday police and fbi discovered a package that was apparent apparently sent by james holmes, the 24-year-old suspected gunman. now it's unclear obviously if this package was indeed sent by him, it was clearly sent before he was taken into custody. it arrived at some point on monday at the university mail room. we've also been told by hospital officials over the last couple of days this is something we've been monitoring for some time that there were two packages that were suspicious and were being looked into, one found in the mail room and also one that was actually delivered to a university professor. so we've been trying to nail down more information on this. and we'll continue to do so, wolf. >> what's the university of colorado saying about all of this, ed? >> reporter: well, now that the details have come out that this packag
and refrigerators and other items and they see it as, well, this president is actually doing something for us, and he is getting the votes. >> a trade off, too, because the people who are given the homes, they criticize the government, they take them away. >> well, the writing is on the wall, and every time we see one of the live shows in which the president gives away the houses, you see the people saying all of the most beautiful things that you can think of, and chavez is my commander, and he's my benefactor and so good for the people and so good, but not once have i seen anybody say anything wrong about chavez, and that tells you a lot. >> and he also recently awarded an apartment to a woman who became his 3 millionth twitter follower, and he is a big twitter follower. >> yes, he is wildly popular and the message is getting through to twitter again, and he did this, and he is rewarding somebody for being the 3 millionth follower. >> can you imagine if president obama or mitt romney were giving away homes on live television? >> no. >> thank you, miguel. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.co

in chief he has the obligation to help us to solve this problem. i ask our colleagues to please support this legislation. bring transparency. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from maryland is recognized. mr. van hollen: thank you, madam speaker. i listened carefully to what the chairman of the armed services committee said, and i didn't find much that i disagree with. we agree that we should replace the sequester. we agree that it's a mistake to create the kind of uncertainty that's out there, and obviously it has an impact not just in the defense sector, but also in all the other areas where our federal government has activities. but i would just say, and i want to make sure the chairman's on the floor now and has a chance to respond, he demonstrated some leadership on this issue. last fall, because he was asked this question, he was asked if he had to put together a plan that included some revenue, he said, yeah. i understand we got to make cuts, but i'd rather include some revenue than deep cuts to defense. in fact, what he said was,
, hot temperatures. >> yes, a beautiful day in store for us, tom? >> indeed. tom kieran in the storm center4. we have had the humidity lowered overnight. look at what's happening over the last 12 hours. yesterday afternoon/evening we had the passing thunderstorms. a lot of thunder and lightning. mainly south of the metro area. and now it's all settled. we have got a weak area of high pressure that is pushing in. temperatures are comfortable. all those areas in green are in the 60s. fairfax, prince georges counties and right in the district in the low to mid 70s along the tidal and potomac and near the bay. at the beaches, near 70 there. out of the mountains in the low to mid 60s. as well as parts of the shenandoah valley. a beautiful start to the sunday morning. your day planner for this sunday, lots of sun this morning. a delightful morning. it will be mild. still not a lot of humidity during the afternoon. somewhat lower humidity, but temperatures climbing to near 90 degrees by mid afternoon. by then, some clouds beginning to build. and we'll have just a slight chance of an isolate
would not use the word conditionality, but i think the discussion with pakistan after they took some steps to close the ground lines of communication for supplies and so forth has worked our way back towards a more cooperative relationship. i think the u.s. in this administration has been clear about the areas of cooperation that we need to see to be able to continue to move forward with the assistance and support. starting first and foremost with counter-terrorism and things related to the safety of our troops in afghanistan. >> moving on to russia and our relations with russia. governor romney seems very upset with president obama's reset policy toward russia. the governor has described russia as the no. 1 global flow of the united states. first of all, what do you think of the governor's criticism? >> i think it is unfair and it misses a couple of the tremendous benefits we have gotten from the recent policy. from the beginning, president obama has been clear that we want to have a partner relationship with russia. where we have differences, we will continue to negotiate and press

[ inaudible question ] >> i don't understand the question. i'm a lawyer. objection, vague. do i know the prosecutor? not personally, no. >> you've done work in colorado? >> i've done work in colorado, but in the federal system. [ inaudible question ] >> we've been told that's highly likely that that's going to happen. >> how concerned are you? >> everyone is concerned. [ inaudible statement ] >> well, nobody told me that. from what i know about the laws in colorado. it is a death penalty state. obviously it's going to be murder one. and that's when someone can be facing the death penalty. i actually am in communication with them as well. >> i have concern for their safety.

case scenario for all of us in the region is when you get full-out civil war, there is no coming back. if it breaks down, if civil order breaks down to the point of no return, then it will take years to fix syria. and i have a feeling that we're seeing the signs of that over the past three weeks. the only people that can bring us back from that brink is obviously the president and the regime. and i believe this is the last chance that they have. >> my exclusive interview with king abdullah will air during our next hour during our 5:00 p.m. eastern hour here in "the situation room." you're going to want to hear what he has to say about syria a lot more detail. also, we spoke about mitt romney and barack obama in the interview. he's got some serious thoughts about these two individuals. >>> let's get to the presidential race right now. in today's republican triple play in ohio, not only is mitt romney campaigning there, so are two men getting mentioned, lots of mentions in fact, as possible running mates. the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, and the former florida governor, jeb bush. c
labott is joining us live with the very latest. bulgarians are of course investigating. i'm sure the israelis are as well. first of all, what are the bulgarians saying? >> reporter: well, wolf, forensic investigators on the scene. it's all very preliminary at this point, but they're saying that this was caused by a bus bomb already placed inside the bus. that's really all they know, but they're not ruling anything out. they say it's possibly a terrorist attack. obviously the israelis saying they're sure of it. but bulgarians not ruling anything in, not ruling anything out at this point, wolf. >> didn't take very long for the prime minister of israel, benjamin netanyahu to directly blame iran for this attack. >> reporter: that's right. a short time ago prime minister netanyahu, wolf, put out a statement saying all signs are leading to iran, his defense minister just spoke to reporters a short time ago. let's take a listen to what he said. >> this is clearly a terrorist attack initiated by hezbollah, hamas, jihad or any other group under the terror of iran or other radical muslim g
to help troops ready to turn back outside aggression. peter doocy joins us live with details. hello, peter. >> hi, shannon. it was four months ago that kofi anaan laid out the six point peace plan as part of his duty as the special u.n. envoy and the first part of that plan called for a cease-fire but that did not catch on and neither did the rest of the plan so now, anaan says so far, the peace process has failed telling a french newspaper that "significant efforts have been made to try to resolve this situation peacefully. obviously, we have not succeeded and perhaps there's no guarantee that we will succeed. anaan just arrived moments ago in damascus in syria to try to save his peace plan but here in washington, the former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. john bolton told us this morning it's going to be a struggle because two of the main superpowers in the region, russia and china have nothing to gain from a peace in syria. >> i think russia sees the syrian regime as critical of what it remains in its position in the middle east. those factors aren't going to change. if russia could replac
will not tolerate health care fraud. and in every instance where we uncover it, we will use all of our available tools to help -- to hold those responsible to account. before i turn over the podium to our next speaker, i want to read knowledge our colleagues and partners at a part of health and human services. -- the department of health and human services. the federal bureau of investigation, the federal drug control unit, and of our federal and state partners who have made valuable contributions to this effort. i would also like to thank karman ortiz, the ditch attorney for the state of massachusetts, who -- the district attorney for the state of massachusetts, who has done an enormous amount to make this effort possible in a longstanding commitment to eradicating health care fraud. i also want to thank john walsh, the district attorney of kalla rudder, and his office, for their significant -- of colorado, and his office, for their significant contributions to this effort. and finally, the civil efforts in advance in this investigation and other important ones like it. it is now my pleasure to
place where there's been a lot of ups and downs and controversy, has been the pool. the u.s. had some mixed results yesterday. >> disappointing day for ryan lochte. he came out without a medal in the 200 meters, free. the great day for matt grievers. and for missy, the missile franklin, she got her first olympic gold of this games in the 100 meters backstroke as well. all the eyes today will be on michael phelps, a big, big day for him. he's back in action, looking do make history with a third straight gold with the 200 meters fly. today could be the day that he breaks the record, 18 olympic medals. and then of course, the chinese sensation, yi xia wen, she's been forced to stand up for the chinese team, deny claims of doping after that sensational performance of hers in the 400 meters individual medley. she's up for the 200 meters individual medley. she set an olympic record in her semifinal. the only crime she's committed is swimming fast up to this point. a lot of pressure on her. >> she in fact swam five minutes faster than her personal best and she broke a world record. one u.s.

overdrive and arms his opponent, mitt romney, with new political ammunition to use against him. look at this. unemployment is stuck at 8.2%. and only 80,000 jobs added in june. the numbers are even worse when you look at minorities. we're covering all sides of this dramatic political story. our own dan lothian and dana bash, they are both standing by live. but first cnn's poppy harlow breaks down the numbers. >> hi there, wolf. i think the headline for this jobs report is disappointing. only 80,000 jobs created in the month of june. unemployment stays at 8.2%. we need to be creating somewhere between 300,000 and 400,000 jobs a month pretty consistently to bring that rate down. issues here 12.7 million americans still unemployed in this country. 5.4 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer. the longer you're out of work, the longer it takes you to find a job. that is a problem. also very key here. 2.5 million people are not counted in this unemployment rate at all. they can work, but they have stopped looking for work. so they're not counted in the unemploy
and everybody, the president, the secretary, everybody agrees that would be very devastating for u.s. national security and they want to avoid at all costs. >> thank you. that is helpful. rich, governor romney has said many, many times that he would not like to cut the defense budget, but at to the same time be inconsistent with lower taxes. within the framework of the problems that the country has to date with respect to the national deficit, et cetera, i don't know anybody who says you can't raise defense spending, cut taxes and accomplish anything with respect to the national debt. so how do you do that, sir? >> i should introduce you to more people. >> look, i heard the same thing in 1979 and in 1980. on the economy was crippled with double-digit inflation. >> you think is the same as in today? >> no, it's worse, but it can be done with the government's been clear about if he thinks we have to rebuild our navy. and he thinks obviously with the philosophical difference with president obama and governor reagan on the economy -- governor romney and president obama on the economy, it is one th

[captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] from government was there in the wee hours of the morning when we were doing our regular jobs at the same time working to start our business. small businesses operate in a world of bottom lines washington knows very little about. unlike washington, they don't have the luxury to deficit spend, print more money or profess as, quote, spending cuts, lower than anticipated growth. when the president claimed the american system allowed the askess to thrive, he made a dangerous -- allowed the success to thrive, he made a dangerous error. it does not permit them to drive. that language suggests government is a benefactor possessing the authority to give or take the blessings of open commerce as it sees fit. no, government does not allow you to thrive. government, when it operates in its constitutional capacity, does not object -- obstruct your thriving. ask

from the depths of ocean. it is all "happening now." jenna: hi, everybody, we're glad your with us on a very busy news day. i'm jenna lee. we have brand new fox news polls on the election, on the economy and who voters would like to see on the republican ticket with governor mitt romney. jon: i'm jon scott. 110 days until americans head to the polls. what are we thinking about the state the race and issues affecting it right now? first when asked whether the obama administration has made the economy better or worse, 37% of respondents say the president's policies have made the economy better. that is a seven-point drop from march. meanwhile those who say the economy has gotten worse, jumping seven points over that same period to 49%. look at the head-to-head race. the president with a razor thin lead over governor romney. nearly unchanged from a year ago. that is not all these polls tell us. erin mcpike is national political reporter for "real clear politics" and joins us now. erin, see if you can explain that. you have more people saying the president and his policies have made th
on the attack against the president using really his own words instead of having to come up with a hurried vice presidential announcement. and, wolf, there are some tea leaves to read here. kelly aot said to be high on mitt romney's vice presidential search list, she is going to be appearing with mitt romney up in new hampshire tomorrow. the romney campaign announced that yesterday. wolf, i think it stands to reason that the campaign would not have announced this event, would not have said slooes going to be at this event up in new hampshire if they were going to somehow come out tomorrow and announce she's the vice presidential running mate. so i think that's an indication that perhaps this window before he goes to the olympics is closing and that the vice presidential announcement will come off the olympics are over, wolf. >> they haven't released his exact schedule yet. when he's going to be in london, israel, when he's heading back to the united states. he's going to poland as well. do we know any details about that? >> reporter: wolf, i can tell you right now that, yes, all three of those
kidnapped in that area this year. elise labott has been following the developments for us from jordan. she joins us by phone. elise, what is different would you say about this kidnapping compared to the others that we've reported on before? >> reporter: well, randi, in the past a lot of these kidnappings were about money. a lot of them were trying to make a little extra money. what they would do is kidnap americans or other westerners for ransom. and a short period of time they were released. this time they have some very specific demands. they have some relatives detained recently in alexandra on drug charges and they want them released in exchange for releasing these americans. >> so will the state department, will anybody in the u.s. government negotiate with them? >> reporter: well, that's not really u.s. policy, randi, to negotiate with kidnappers or terrorists. and also this is about egyptian law. the egyptian authorities are working on this issue with trying to negotiate the release, not really clear whether they would let these relatives go. but the u.s. is really leaving it in the
illness is important. what we learned from this program could help us in other programs of diseases coming from iraq and afghanistan. if you get a chance to visit walter reed bethesda hospital see some very strange viruses and molds and funguses that are coming from places that we never expected to see but we're seeing them now. this research program could help another research program to deal with these deadly diseases that are affecting our troops in large numbers. and so while we already give $10 million in this bill, i am going to agree with mr. kucinich and agree to his amendment to add the additional money. mr. dicks: if the gentleman will yield? mr. young: i do. mr. dicks: this gulf war illness has been something that bothered me a great deal. it's a very difficult diagnosis on what was causing this, but i think an additional investment here is worthy and i think we should accept the amendment. i'm glad the chairman accepts it. mr. young: i thank the gentleman for his comments and thank mr. kucinich for offering the amendment and i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the q

own in this race for the white house. jim acosta is joining us from boston right now. what's going on on this day as far as the republican presidential candidate, jim, is concerned? >> reporter: wolf, the back and forth in this campaign right now is all about four words the president said nearly a week ago, the words you didn't build that. the comment has the romney campaign building a new line of attack that is resonating with republicans. republicans hope it's a sign mitt romney is back in business. >> when the president said that, if you got a business, you didn't build it, come here and talk to brian. and you'll learn that in fact he did build this business. >> i take umbrage at the suggestion that people don't start and build businesses. >> now, i'm know some people that think what the president said was just a gaffe. it wasn't a gaffe. it was instead his ideology. >> reporter: on a day he was expected to stay behind closed doors, he was at a truck repair company near his boston headquarters to keep hammering a comment made by the president last friday. >> if you got a busines
this is great for us, let's go to the american people and make this election a referendum on whether obamacare is good. >> it's never going to supersede jobs and the economy as an issue, though. i don't see it happening. what i do see happening is this t continuing dialogue on the romney campaign. calls for romney campaign shake-up continued to gain ground as news corporation rupert murdoch became a berserk tweeter over the weekend. >> sort of you like you, mike? >> he said in one tweet met romney last week, tough chicago will be tough to beat unless he drops old team and hires real pros. yesterday those concerns were echoed by jackwe welch of ge an he writes home mitt romney is listening to murdoch advice on campaign staff playing in league wi chicago pols. >> he's not there full time but he's at the table when big decisions are made and i don't know if jack welch or rupert murdoch can name someone who can win more campaigns than ed gillespie. it's true there are some people in there who have never won a presidential campaign. the president's campaign team is also relatively small and they've

administrations suggests an answer. he has said regulatory uncertainty is invented by republicans to use current economic problems to support an ajeopardya year in and year out. it is political way. look at what this bill would do. it seems like frankenstein and it is very frightening. the underlying bill would block all efforts to protect public health, safety and the environment until the unemployment rate falls below the figure of 6% and it would impose canses on the government and would put impedements to consent decrees and settlements. nuclear power, the safety of the american public would be put at serious risk. my amendment to attempt to make this bill slightly less of a horror show. the dangers of nuclear power are well known. one accident could doom millions of people. because of the disasters that could happen, regulations to prevent from meltdowns in advance are important. the underlying bill would make it harder to adopt rules and policies. hampering the ability of the n.r.c. to put in safety measures could be devastating. my amendment would free the n.r.c. from the burdens of this
that is where you are no longer going to use it. now you could still use the argument and you hear that argument more often on the republican side which is just sort of let them all slaughter each other, and without a great consideration of the strategic calculations in the middle east because it's sort of like the middle east, just go away. so, i think that is also a pretty powerful again, i would emphasize -- emphasize if you had to write now put your finger on something that would change the dynamic here, that has to be turkey. turkey. i think, i think professor -- professor, president obama's out of this one unless you see something happen in turkey or if you just see the slaughter accelerate at such a rate that we are more or less obliged to do something. it's possible that if the fsa could get ahold of aleppo and declared a free city to set up an opposition government in aleppo and figure out some way how to stop the armor, the artillery and the planes from driving them out at least for a while, that you could rapidly change the dynamic. and it would certainly be, it would certainly be an
? >> i will say the way i get news is i use my twitter account to get almost all the news i get. for many people, especially young people, that is a cool way to do it. i find because i used my twitter stream -- i set up a specific group of people i follow for breaking news, and it has been built over several years, and it's really large at this point -- the point being i find i am a good 25 minutes ahead of people on breaking news because i am on twitter. i checked but other sources. that is my favorite way to follow news, and it feels the same as the shift when i was in newspapers. i was the only person reading blogs in the newsroom. twitter can serve the same purpose. can be fast and wrong, sorry you need to check. if you are a news junkie, that is my favorite thing. i also love "the wall street journal," fox is. i like to watch my own cliffs. hotair.com, because i work there now. the george mason university economists have their own blogs. a woman who works at newsweek -- i love reading her. aside from news, i like reading more analytical, wonky stuff. everybody done? since we are on c
pays for your health care. there has been a study showing how much that dilution costs us. it concluded that the income we lose because our employers taking part of our paid to purchase our health insurance, part of the premium we pay in addition to that, the taxes we pay and our out of pocket costs, the average american family pays $25,000 per year for the illusion that we get free health care. >> essentially, there's a reason for insurance, to protect against catastrophic costs. if you have a heart attack or cancer, you cannot just pay the doctor or the surgery. it is just like homeowners insurance or life insurance or any other insurance. when you prepare routine costs of front, you are paying the insurance company to do it. >> i'm a retired army physician. from your point of view and for your adversaries on the left, when all the dust settles, whatever and wins, what will happen to the military medical care system which includes the hospitals run by the uniformed services as well as the va system? >> i am glad you brought this up. it is little appreciated that one of the fastest-gr
did the u.s. perg title it campus debit card trap? you guessed it. many are charged unreasonable fees that are costing them and the country millions of dollars. according to the report, 15 financial institutions have debit or prepaid card contracts with 878 campuses that serve more than nine million students. it's a big business. 42% of all students nationwide go to school on these 878 campuses. it's a lucrative business for financial institutions. there's a lot of money to be made from fees on college debit cards especially when you start charging fees on the billions of dollars disbursed each year in federal student aid. so the federal money is passing through these cards to the students, the financial institutions are making money in the process. as the u.s. perg report showed some of the fees are clearly unreasonable. one of the most egregious is a per-transaction fee on students for students for using a pin number instead of a signature. one of the largest campus debit card companies, hire one, currently charges students 50 cents every time the student enters his pin number at a
in the notebook mailed to his psychiatrist can be used as evidence or kept confidential. >>> a shock new congressional report revealing one in five illegal immigrants arrested for crimes commit within three years of being released. department of homeland security stats, based on nearly 8500 drunk driving offenses and more than 6,000 drug arrests. there were also arrests for murder and kidnapping. house judiciary chair is outraged by this. he said the obama administration could be prevented these crimes by enforcing our immigration laws but he refuses to while innocent americans suffer the consequences. no right from homeland security. those are your headlines this morning. >> did you get a phone call recently from the gallop people, they probably called during speaker, asking what is the number one issue that the next president of the united states must address? and this comes as bad news for p.m. and probably good -- for president obama and probably good news for mitt romney. the number one was not about taxing the rich, which is the current number one thing the president is pushing, it

report about the same time we do. >> cbs new legal analyst jack ford is with us now. jack, this is not -- these are not legal findings not a criminal investigation but it still stands to have a major impact. what do you see it being? >> it is important. you have to realize, as you said, it's not a legal document. it has no force of law behind it. it's not an indictment. some states allow grand juries to offer up what are often called presentations, which can be criticisms of government entities or individuals. it's none of that. it's essentially a private individual doing an exhaustive investigation, as we heard from armen and saying here's what went wrong and here are things. what it is really is a roadmap. it's going to allow penn state and anyone else interested including the victims and their lawyers to find out who did what and who knew what when and who didn't do certain things. but it's going to give penn state a roadmap to say here's what you need to do to make sure it doesn't happen again. >> who do they go after? the university and joe patern
